I first stamped the image and sentiment on white cardstock with black ink.
Next, I spritzed the white cardstock with Smooch Spritz in Cosmic Pink, Gingerale and Pralines & Cream, adding a nice shimmer and shine to the paper. Because I wanted to work with this paper immediately, I heat set it to speed the drying process.
I then embossed the paper with an embossing folder and used Ruby Ink around the edges and across the raised, embossed image. It's easy to ink just the areas you want using this unique style of ink pad because the pad is raised away from the base and the Petal Point allows for more precise control of where the ink is applied.
I cut out the image and inked the edges with the Ruby Petal Point ink and added it to the diecut black oval with foam dots. The sentiment was also inked, matted with black cardstock and added to the card with foam dots just above the image. Stick pins were added to knot of the ribbon just for fun. I adhered the finished patterned paper to black cardstock, added a ribbon around the card, then placed the embellished die cut oval on top.
